Bright Explosion On The Moon

Moon Asteroid Impact

Moon Asteroid Impact

The Largest Seen Lunar – Meteor Impact

On March 17, 2013 an object the size of a small boulder hit the Mare Imbrium region of Earth’s Moon. It exploded in a flash that was caught on camera. Had you been watching at the time of impact, you could have seen the glow of the explosion with the naked eye.

The explosion was as bright as a 4th magnitude star. The bolder was 0.3 to 0.4 meters in size, traveled at 56,000 mph and hit with an explosion that was equivalent to 5 tons of TNT.

The Lunar Monitoring Program is charged with monitoring the sky for similar impacts that might cause a threat to Earth. In the history of the program, this is the largest explosion seen to date.

This strike is believed to be part of a larger event that also effected the Earth. But because we have an atmosphere, the material that struck earth during the March 17th event burned up before hitting the ground. Something the Moon can’t do since it doesn’t have an atmosphere.

NASA posted a video showing the impact and talking about the event on their YouTube Channel. Watch “Bright Explosion on the Moon“. Or read about it on Space.com “Huge Rock Crashes Into Moon.”

We’re Having Technical Difficulties

Our Theme Customization Has Crashed

Don’t worry, if you’re looking for Spyderwolf’s Galaxy, you really are at the right place. It seems something happened overnight and our theme header has reverted back to the original default. We’re not exactly sure what happened, but we’ve reported the issue to WordPress (who is our blog host) and we hope to have it resolved soon enough.

We really like our site’s header so we hope it’s fixed soon!
